What WE do


Appliance inspection

iSpec Solutions offers industries across the United Kingdom a very quick and easy way to avoid the dangers associated with using poor gas welding and cutting equipment, and ensure compliance with the BCGA codes of practice. Our on-site gas and safety equipment check will provide you with a full inspection by a qualified inspector. During the inspection, our engineer will carry out a thorough functionality and leak test of all components – regulators, flashback arresters, hoses, torches and associated fittings.

Comprehensive Safety Reporting

In addition to our thorough, engineer-led inspection, a report of their findings will be comprehensively written up and issued to our client. Gas equipment can be a significant hazard at work if not maintained properly. Using unsafe equipment, or failing to test equipment fully, could result in severe accidents and serious injury in the workplace. Our Safety Report will highlight such issues and make recommendations for correction. 

Comprehensive Safety Reporting

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974), an employer has a responsibility to provide and maintain plant equipment and systems that are so far as reasonably practical, safe and without risk to health. Our inspectors are fully trained and kept up-to-date with the latest guidelines, allowing them to update clients on current Health and Safety guidance within the workplace, and BCGA Codes of Practice.

Example Regulations include:

Statutory Instruments 1998 No 2306

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (1998) requires that the user of an installed system and the owner of a mobile system shall ensure that the system is properly maintained in good repair, so as to prevent danger.

Statutory Instruments 2000 No 126

The Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (2000) requires equipment to be examined regularly. 

Consequently, gas welding and cutting equipment MUST be inspected regularly by law. 


The BCGA’s Code of Practice 7 (CP7 – The Safe Use of Oxy-Fuel Gas Equipment) and Guidance Notes 7 (GN7 – The Safe Use of Individual Portable or Mobile Cylinder Gas Supply Equipment) recommends that regulators and flashback arresters are checked annually, and replaced at least every 5 years. Checks need to be undertaken by a person who has sufficient practical experience of oxy-fuel gas equipment, appropriate theoretical knowledge of the functioning of the equipment, the properties of the gases used, the potential defects and hazards that may occur and their importance to the integrity and safety of the equipment.
